IRS Audit And Tax Court Appeals
You generally have the legal right to appeal almost any IRS decision, including the outcome of a tax audit, the filing of a federal tax lien, wage and bank levies, or even the rejection of a proposed installment agreement or Offer in Compromise. If you are in the middle of a disagreement with the IRS, then an appeal might be the next logical step. One of the guaranteed legal rights for all taxpayers is the right to appeal IRS actions. Because there are often time-sensitive deadlines for filing appeals, it is important to always have the decision to appeal reviewed by an experienced tax attorney as soon as possible.
Too many taxpayers are afraid to file a Tax Court appeal because they think that it will be too expensive. What they don’t know is that most Tax Court cases never come to trial. In fact, very few Tax Court appeals are actually litigated. When you file an appeal in Tax Court, your case is automatically sent back to appeals and you get a second bite at the appeals apple. In other words, filing an appeal in Tax Court gives you a second chance to try to negotiate with an IRS representative in order to lower the amount of tax that you will have to pay. By filing an appeal in Tax Court, you also delay any IRS collection action, thereby giving you additional time to arrange for payment.
